It's BTS' first English track.
Third time’s a charm, and that's definitely held true for the ongoing relationship between Korean septet BTS and Steve Aoki. Today (Oct. 25), the Grammy-nominated producer and DJ debuted the new song “Waste It On Me,” which features the boy band’s members. It is the BTS' first song that is entirely in English.
A vibrantly smooth EDM track, “Waste It On Me” relays the dramatic feelings of passion one feels when they want to spend all their time with a person they love. With a rollicking beat, sweeping synths, and bright, horn-like effects arriving with the choral build guiding the track, BTS expressively reflects the desire to invest time in one another regardless of any reluctance. “So if love is nothing more than just a waste of your time/Waste it on me," the Billboard 200 chart-topping boy band sings.
“Waste It On Me” was released alongside a colorful lyric music video, which features the imagery initially teased in a mysterious billboard in Los Angeles that excited BTS’ fandom ARMY and prompted “The Great BTS Billboard Hunt” hashtag as fans tried to figure out what the signage was hinting.
